Joel Brunker Inks Deal With Promoter Gary Shaw

Gary Shaw of Gary Shaw Productions is proud to announce the he and elite Australian boxing promoter Angelo Di Carlo of ACE Boxing Promotions have signed a co-promotional agreement with 25-year-old Sydney, Australia, featherweight Joel Brunker.

Brunker (20-0, 13 KOs) is the current WBO Oriental Featherweight Champion and ranked #6 in the world by the WBO. He won the vacant Australian Title by shutting out Ernie Gonzales and defended it twice before moving on to win the WBO Youth World Title in September 2010 against Carlos Lopez.

As an amateur, Brunker went 106-19 while competing in the 2004 Olympics; he was also the NSW Championship six times, the Australian Champion four times and won gold medals at the Arafura and Oceania Games.

He caught Shaw's eye recently on the undercard of IBF Middleweight Champion Daniel Geale's victory over Eromosele Albert at the Derwent Entertainment Centre in Tasmania. Fighting in front of 5000 of his countrymen, Brunker scored a hard-fought decision over Reynaldo Belandres of the Philippines.

"I was so impressed with him," admitted Shaw. "He was in a very tough fight, but you could see he's going to be a top featherweight and will soon be a world champion. It was a tremendous victory for Joel and I'm very happy to be working with him and with my co-promotional partner Angelo Di Carlo."

Shaw says that he and Di Carlo will give the fighter a week off and then sit down and plot their next move, which will involve steady movement up the world rankings.
